yeah through my personal exp. ppl, just set one tank up and focus on it. Two made it more than enough for me. The wc's, cost of stocking, two of everything just about lol.
My plans for this future build are bare bottom with an acrylic insert to hide the bottom euro bracing as much as possible. Edit: the three viewing sides are going to be starphire glass
Penninsula/three side viewing and YES a closed loop.
The overflow is external for maximum real estate. All tank for my coral and fishys!
The closed loop drain is the one main hole u see below the overflow. It will go up and over the tank and come out the four holes on the top. Return lines are the two holes on the back wall high sides.
Hopefully i can gather some motivation and get my butt to mclendons for paint and 1/2" thick plywood for the surface of the stand. Lets get this stand done!
My hood/canopy I like the idea of it floating or hanging off the wall above the tank kinda levitating. We will c. I know I'd like the access doors to open up rather than out. I'm tired of hitting my head lol.
